Cynthia Ona Innis’s (Affiliate ’12–’13) work stems from a fascination with hauntingly sublime, diverse and sometimes threatening landscapes that surround us.

She has had solo exhibitions at Traywick Contemporary, Berkeley; Bentley Projects Gallery, Phoenix; PS122 Gallery, New York; and Walter Maciel Gallery, Los Angeles, among other venues. She has been included in shows at The Drawing Center, New York; Skidmore College, New York; San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art; Southern Exposure; and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, among numerous other exhibitions. Her work is included in public collections such as the San Jose Museum; the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive; Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; and the U.S. Art in Embassies Program. She lives and works in Berkeley, California.
